0002628: Make monitoring not bump tickets
This is getting very, very annoying. Whenever someone monitors a ticket, it gets bumped, which is pretty much the epitome of useless bumps. Can something please be done about this? IMO preferably monitoring shouldn't even cause a log message, since it doesn't add anything to the ticket.
No tags attached.

I reject this idea, because the "recent changes" is a "timeline" (as it's called in newer versions of MantisBT). It is an update of a ticket, especially when adding external people to a ticket via monitoring (as dubious as it is).

Recent changes should stay as is, work with other MantisBT features to find issues you want to focus on.

The feature allowing devs to force people to monitor a ticket should be removed anyway, it happened to me once and was very annoying.

I also don't see monitoring listed under Issue History or the likes so it's essentially an invisible bump.

It's the only way to attempt to page another user to a ticket. You should be able to remove yourself from the monitor list after you address whatever reason you were added. If you just don't like email notifications in general then you are free to change your emailing preferences under "My Account."
